Two persons have been killed after no less than 172 inmates escaped a Haitian prison near the capital Port-au-Prince during an armed mutiny, local media reported on Sunday.

Le Nouvelliste newspaper reported that a guard was shot dead and two other police officers were wounded on Saturday.

This is even as the newspaper quoted Arcahaie prison manager Heurtelou Paul Colson as saying that one prisoner climbed over a wall and fell to his death, while two other detainees were wounded and in hospital.

The prison manager also told Le Nouvelliste that Yvener Carelus, who was serving time for kidnapping, was the mastermind behind the escape – although he was arrested.

Meanwhile, authorities have launched a manhunt for the escapees, with police checking all roads in the Arcadins coastal zone near Arcahaie prison.

“The government strongly condemns the incidents that took place at Arcahaie prison, targeted in a mutiny by heavily armed individuals,” the office of interim prime minister Enex Jean-Charles, who also serves as defense minister, said in a statement.

“Special police units are on site to secure the area and prevent those responsible from causing further harm.”
